Wed. November 21 @ 7:30pm Resurgens closes our Season of Domestic Tragedies with a play based on the brutal murder of a prominent London merchant, George Sanders, in 1573. First performed by Shakespeare’s company in the late sixteenth century, A Warning for Fair Women mixes allegory, masque, bloodlust, and courtroom drama in a show unlike anything Atlanta audiences have experienced at the Shakespeare Tavern—in fact, it’s unlike anything anyone has experienced anywhere, as there’s no record of any public performance since 1599. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, our “original practices” production will work in close collaboration with Dr. Ann Christensen, the editor of a new critical edition of the text, to create the first professional staging of this lost tragedy in modern history.
